Hello! I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher for 2019-2020! We are going to have a GREAT year.
This will be my fifth year teaching, and my first year at Luther Branson. I graduated with a Masters in Education from the University of Florida and specialized in reading instruction. I was blessed to earn an athletic scholarship and was a 17-time All-American and Olympic Trials qualifier for the Gators' swim team.
I have two teenage sons, Joseph and Stephen, who attend Madison Central and Madison Middle. I enjoy spending time with family, reading, and volunteering at my church.
My assistant's name is Sherita Smith, and she grew up at Luther Branson and is so excited to be back. She and I make a great team, and we are going to focus all our energies into helping your child reach their full potential.
P.S. My last name is tricky to pronounce. It rhymes with "beaker" and the "U" is silent.
